This is my America the Beautiful quilt. I started it about a year ago, for a guild project; it was in McCall's quilting magazine last year as an installment each issue. I wasn't going to make this quilt, but my friend talked me into. I started out a couple of issues behind, but got caught up until the 4th part. It was so hard deciding what fabrics and colors to use for every part, I just put it away. One of the ladies finished hers, and now I am inspired to finish mine.
what's left? The four big, white spaces are two rows of HSTs. I don't know what colors I want to use. Also, There are several strips necessary to make everything fit together. Again, not sure what I should do. Any suggestions?
I was hoping to maybe finish up this weekend, but I don't think that is going to happen. Tomorrow I need to get ready for a machine quilting class on Monday that Paula Reid is teaching. I'm hoping she can give me some confidence to start quilting my filmsys. ( Is that a word?) : )
This is Cissy. She looks innocent, doesn't she?
This is what she did as she passed by. Just a little skip! Well, I better get back to my project, it won't sew itself! Besides, it's 93 outside, so a good day to be inside at the sewing machine.
